Bunner of Party's Success Next
Louisville, Ky, July 22. President
Taft has no more loyal supporters any
where than in Kentucky, and every
mention of his name in the Bepublican
.State convention, today provoked tho
wildest enthusiasm. The convention
adopted a- platform that dealt chiefly
with 8tate issues, but the first -plank
contained in the platform was a ring
ing' Indorsement -of- thc administration
of President Taft ariT his eanoTdaey
for re-election 'in 1912.'
In the platform as originally adopt
ed, of the 'three Bepublican" mem

tioned. He was commended for sup
porting the policies of the President
Later, however, a resolution was adopt
ed commending Senator Bradley, Rep
resentative Caleb Powers and Bepre
sentative John W. Langley for their
support of the President, and indorsed
their records in Congress.

the wildest enthusiasm prevailed.
. An effort was made to. nominate for
mer Congressman Don OL -Edwards for
lieutenant irovernor. His name was
presented to the convention, but Mr.J
Edwards insisted that he not Jbe voted' very 'much favr ot a.Negro De

ment. Judge O 'Bear's Praise of Mr. Taft.
In a formal statement Judge O'Bear
"The Bepublican party ia a progres
sive party. It always has been. Whenlprjma donna ot tho gt festival at
it ceases to be sucn it win oegin. to
die. The last President of the United
States before the present incumbent
was progressive. I do not think any
body has a doubt about that. The
present incumbent William Howard
Taft is also truly progressive; He
believes in applying to the changed
and changing conditions of the times
such new policies 'of owrnment, as
will fairly and justly meet theYequire
ments of his day. It is therefor that
he has the confidence, the admiration,
and the trust of the American people,
who know him as a man of tried and
proven integrity, one who believes in
going ahead with his country, who be
lieves in making it and keeping it
abreast with the best of the age, who
is today the most conspicuous states
man in America, advocating sane, pro
gressive policies, measuring dp to the
demands of the public opinion and the
popular judgment. The Bepublican
party will not forsake the ideal of pro
gress which has marked it fromtbe
hour of its birth." The Washington
(D. a) Post, July 22, 1911.
